[ # ] Rebel Wilson dolphin rapes Andy Richter
October 16th, 2013 under Conan O'Brien, Rebel WIlson


Rebel Wilson was on her boss’ show Conan yesterday and she told the TBS late night host how she is being censored on their ABC show Super Fun Night.
She told Conan O’Brien that the censors have an issue with her referencing dolphin rape, and he didn’t know what she meant. So she demonstrated it on Andy Richter and the sidekick will never be the same. Then the Pitch Perfect star said another thing they didn’t like, is a scene she shot in a bathing suit. What is so bad about that since we have seen her in Spanx? Well she added an old man’s beard to the bottom part, and as funny as it looked the ABC lawyers weren’t laughing and Conan sided with them. I am kind of bummed we won’t be seeing it because it actually sounds like it would be hysterical.
Now you might be wondering why I am saying Conan O’Brien is her boss? Well it is because of him she has this sitcom. Over the summer at the TCA ABC Summer Press Tour Day, the host explained how he got involved with the Rebel and her show. He said, “It happened very organically for me. Rebel was on the show as a guest, and as a lot of you know, I’ve been doing this is now for 20 years, and with three guests a night, do the math because I can’t.” Then when the laughter died down, he added, “And very occasionally, very rarely, but occasionally, someone’s on the show who I haven’t met before, and it’s a revelation. And Rebel was on the show, and she was hilarious, and when the show was over, I stood up and I walked over to the executive producer Jeff Ross and just said, ‘I want her back tomorrow and the next day and the next day. She’s absolutely fantastic.'”
So he did his research on her and watched a show she did called Bogan Pride. When he finished it, he knew she was meant to be a TV star because she is “vulnerable, fearless” and one of the most likable actresses he has met in his two decades of doing this job nightly. So he had a meeting with her, and told her to come up with something. Then she returned with the idea for Super Fun Night and the rest is TV history.
Now that is boring part; here is their interaction during the panel, that shows what he saw in her. Rebel chimed in while he was explaining how the show came about, “And then you offered to put out if I went with your production.” To which he responded, “Yes. Yes, I did, and then I couldn’t perform.” So she defended him by adding, “Then I said I wasn’t into gingers anyway.” And that is when he knew he hit Aussie Gold, “Exactly. And then I realized she hates me as much as other women in my life hate me, and this could really work.” And work it did because together they have the #1 new comedy on Wednesday nights. So watch it tonight at 9:30p on ABC.
